MAXPREPS (Stephen Spiewak) – One of the biggest stories of the young college football season has been the sensational play of Cal receiver Keenan Allen.
A true freshman, Allen has 210 yards receiving and two scores in his first two games. He has also run for a touchdown. He starred at Northern Guilford (Greensboro, N.C.) where, as a senior, he recorded 53 total touchdowns playing a number of positions.
Serra (Gardena, Calif.) receiver George Farmer could make a similar impact in the Pac-10 next season. With his 6-foot-2 frame, his size is comparable to Allen, and he’s endowed with the type of striking speed that has made Allen a hit in Berkeley.
As a junior, Farmer scored 17 total touchdowns, used primarily from the wide receiver spot. He has also seen time in the secondary, just like Allen, but does not figure to match the nine interceptions that Allen snagged a year ago.
